Paper Abstract

The display of stereoscopic images implies an attempt to create as realistic an exhibition as can be attained with the particular image display system as possible. Therefore, consideration must be given to the method by which the human visual mechanism perceives and renders such images, so both in the real world and as a result of viewing such displays. Although there are several similarities between the way images are perceived by the human visions system in real life and the way they are perceived when viewing stereoscopic displays, there are also several very important differences. The substance of this paper is directed toward the minimization or, where possible, the elimination of these differences. Both stereoscopic and autostereoscopic display systems are covered, and specified separately where necessary. From the standpoint of the relationship of human vision to the design of a particular display, in many (but not all) instances the requirements necessary to simulate normal human vision are similar in both stereoscopic and autostereoscopic type displays. The descriptions as referenced to, are compared with the corresponding function(s) of the human visual mechanism, emphasizing the strong correlation of the eye-brain model, and the ways by which our perception is affected by the parameters of the particular display.
